English is used in communication worldwide by EFL students and their EFL instructors during science learning and teaching. EFL nursing students and instructors are not supposed to be different from the international setting. However, it was observed that this was not the case for both instructors and students enrolled in the two-grade Ismailia Technical Health Institute and the mother tongue, Arabic, not English, was used considerably. The aim of this study was to unveil the aspects of the problem, including time when Arabic was used, causes of the problem, exact percentages of English and Arabic used in communication, existing barriers to communication in English, and recommendations for intervention. The study involved two-year two majors, namely Medical Laboratories and General Nursing, covering the communication languages used in all subject areas. The study adopted a qualitative approach conducting two separate semi-structured interviews with the same set of questions for both students and their instructors. The findings indicated that the majority of instructors of the two-year two majors used Arabic because they quite mistakably assumed their students had a low proficiency level of English. The findings also revealed that the percentage of English used in communication was remarkably low (10% to 30%)). Recommendations offered by both students and instructors included adding a course for oral communication, and students saw that the time for the English subject be increased. They further suggested instructors should allow students time to express their views and engage them in discussions, debates, interactions, motivate them to use the language

This paper aims to describe the importance of internalizing character education through media that is appropriate to the development of ICT and student characteristics. Considering several facts revealing that the achievement of the internalization of character education in schools is still relatively low, given the low interest in student learning and the use of learning media that tends to be static, whereas in learning in the digital era where students are familiar with the use of technology, of course, it must receive attention given the great potential if opportunities for using ICT in the learning process can be optimized. This paper uses a descriptive qualitative design approach with a literature review method, data is collected from the results of reading orientation of authentic sources namely books, journals and relevant literature and analyzed through reduction, display and verification as conclusions. Internalization of character education in the digital era requires the integration and synergy of ICT, the existence of ICT packaged in the form of educational games will be able to create greater opportunities in optimizing the internalization of character education based on local wisdom, such as Wayang.

The aim of the current research is to identify cyberbullying through social media and its relationship to achievement motivation among adolescent students. The descriptive approach is used for this research due to its relevance to the procedures of such study which aimed at identifying the phenomenon of cyberbullying among adolescent students. The research tools were represented in the use of Kamal Othman scale of achievement motivation, the effect of electronic bullying on motivation, and the use of Magdi Ed-Disouqui scale of school bullying. The results showed a negative correlation that indexed to the "0.1" level between school bullying and achievement motivation. The study concluded that there is -statistically- a negative correlation which is negative between school bullying and achievement motivation. This is proven through the fact that the more bullying is directed to adolescent students, the less motivation they achieve. The results of the study show that school bullying is in inverse proportion to achievement motivation, that is the more bullying, the less motive, and the vice versa. The research presented a number of recommendations, including educating adolescent students about the risks they may be exposed to through social media, and the need to focus studies and researches on family and school environments in order to know all the factors and reasons behind bullying in general and cyberbullying in particular.

This study identified the perceived influence of cloud computing in undergraduate researches in universities in Enugu state, Nigeria. Four objective and research questions were formulated to guide the study. The population for the study was 135 third and final year computer education students in University of Nigeria, Nsukka and Enugu State University of Science and Technology in Enugu state Nigeria. A structured questionnaire of 37 items was used to collect data and was validated by three experts. Data were analyzed using mean and standard deviation. The findings of the study revealed that using cloud Skype for online lectures makes choice of project topic difficult, while using YouTube for online video makes choice of project topic clearer. Cloud computing services make Information upload easier, however, using cloud service to enroll for online courses decreases cost of project researches. This study therefore, recommended that cloud computing should be encouraged by the government and school Management for their student and staff for academic researches, while increasing funds for procuring facilities for effective cloud computing, and for training of students/lectures for appropriate skill acquisition.

This study investigated the level of environmental citizenship development through curriculum development planning among primary school pupils in Rivers State. Three research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The descriptive survey design was used. The population for the study was the 15,611 teachers in the 962 public primary schools in Rivers State. A stratified random sampling technique was used to draw a sample of 1,600 teachers which represents 10.2% of the population. A researchers’ designed questionnaire titled "Curriculum Development Planning in Environmental Education Questionnaire" was the instrument used for the study. The instruments were validated by three experts. Reliability coefficients of 0.88 (Curriculum Provision), 0.73 (Environmental Education Projects), and 0.79 (Challenges) were derived using Cronbach alpha. Mean and standard deviation was used to answer the research questions while the hypotheses were tested using the z-test. Findings revealed that the extent to which environmental education projects were utilized to develop environmental citizenship in pupils is low. The challenges militating against the teaching of environmental education are lack of commitment from the school management, lack of time in the lesson timetable to integrate environmental education contents in other subject areas, and teachers' inadequate knowledge of environmental education integration techniques. It was recommended amongst others that the Nigerian Education Research and Development Council should design age-appropriate curriculum contents/topics that can be integrated into various subjects
